    ASUS Vivobook s550CB SSD unallocated after reset


    I have ASUS vivobook s550cb with windows 8 in it (OEM). It has 1 TB HDD+24GB SSD. Previously, before I reset all drives in this laptop with the OEM OS, the SSD seems to be fully allocated. After reset, the SSD is offline and unallocated. Though, I have made it online in GPT disk, it is still unallocated. How can I utilize the SSD back to its previous condition? I have read all instructions in several forums and I can't seem t find solutions.
    FYI, I have not installed anything yet in this laptop after reset.
    Here is the disk management status:

    I want to use it as a caching drive, instead of storing files. How can I do it? I have followed the instruction from GUIDE Install ExpressCache for SSD Caching - Acer Community
    I did the express cache only, though I have intel rapid start installed from the default. So, the partition in the SSD is all primary partition without hibernated partition. The process was successfully done. However, the ECCmd -info does not showing any caching statistic as I imagine it would be, the result is:

    and disk management shows that the space is not used at all, 22.36 GB capacity and 22.36 GB free in that volume.
    The question is, am I doing it wrong or there should be other step or process that I need to do?
